50 Cent’s “In Da Club” Lawsuit Against Rick Ross Gets Dismissed
50 Cent has collected a lot of Ws in his career, but it looks like a lawsuit he filed against Rick Ross isn't going to be one of them. According to a report TMZ published today (Oct. 4), 50's copyright lawsuit he filed against Rozay for using his "In Da Club" beat for a freestyle has been dismissed.
Rozay's lawyer Leron Rogers tells the celebrity news site that a federal judge dismissed 50's case because the rapper doesn't actually own the copyright or master recordings for the hit 2003 single. For now, the case is closed.
Ross originally put his "In Da Club" remix on Renzel Remixes, which was a mixtape he dropped back in November 2015. Fif, who had previously been ordered to pay Rozay's baby's mother millions of dollars for posting her sex tape months beforehand, filed a copyright suit against Rick Ross in December 2015. Now, the case has come to an end.
Rozay has been trying to put distance between himself and his beef with 50 Cent for years now. Speaking with Ebro on Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning three years ago, Rozay made it clear he was done with the feud.
"This situation is dead, it’s beneath me on a lot of levels,” Ross said at the time. “I made that statement on IG and I meant it… it’s the truth and I meant it. And I’m still processing the application, and if you ever want to see Rozay you could book me. I’ll come to you mama house…I’ll bring Wingstop too. So for the 20th time, I never entertain that, you should never entertain that. Rozay ain’t nobody you want to come see. That’s just life.”
50 has yet to comment on this dismissal of his lawsuit.
